MANHATTAN BEACH, CA - For the past 25 years, Doug Mockett & Company has hosted an annual Design Competition aimed at discovering the most innovative and creative furniture parts, accessories, and hardware. In previous years, we have had multiple winners, up to four at a time as only First Place winners are awarded.

First Place consists of $1,000, an engraved trophy, and royalties based on sales. We send out six figures of royalties each year, so this is the place to submit your design. The entry process is very simple; just include an idea with a write-up. A drawing or even a model is extremely helpful though.

Entries are now open for the 2012 Competition, so send your design, drawing, or model Registered Return Receipt or FEDEX to: Contest Administrator, Doug Mockett & Company, Inc., P.O. Box 3333, Manhattan Beach, CA 90266, or via email to For more information, call (310) 318-2491 and ask for the Contest Administrator. Deadline is approaching – entries due 9/4/12.
